Is There A Way To Make Someone Miss You?

Updated on July 15, 2012

I knew how to make you laugh. And cry. And I knew a thousand ways to help you feel better when you had a really bad day. But I can't make you miss me. Not the way I miss you. And if I don't know how to make you miss me, does anything else really matter?

Why don't you miss me? I would drive 8 hours in the rain to see you right now. But you wouldn't even answer my call. Do you not love me? Is it possible to love someone and miss them so little? I don't understand.

If being loved and being missed are two very different things, I think I'd rather be missed. Because if you missed me enough, you'd have to come back to me, right?

So I guess all I can do is sit here and hope that something reminds you of me. A miracle, perhaps! A song, a voice, a moment, a strange breeze that takes your mind back to me. And then you'll suddenly realize you miss me so much after all. And then you'll come back, and we can rejoice in the end of missing each other, and it will be the greatest day of my life.

      I like this poem. We can never know if someone misses us until they know the price they are paying to lose us in their life. Only the destined connections will truly miss us.

      I agree with Chandryclaire! My thoughts exactly. There is a person in my life whom I don't feel appreciates me. I feel taken for granted and sometimes, as sad as it sounds, I wonder If they would miss me if I were gone. :(

      This really struck a chord with me. A relationship can end despite you being with that person every day, when you don't hear from them anymore it really hurts.
